Interaction of Liquid Crystals with Inhomogeneous Surfaces ( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We undertook the study of the interaction of nematic liquid crystals with inhomogeneous solid surfaces, in the attempt to better understand surface interactions and to fabricate new kinds of devices with novel surface alignment techniques. Along with the surface studies, we considered the optic properties of the new liquid crystal configurations we were attempting to fabricate, and new electro-optical effects that might be achieved. The new surface treatments that we investigated were ones consisting of a microscopically inhomogeneous array of different aligning agents. The cases studied in detail were that of a surface which aligns the nematic director perpendicular to itself, on which we created a random array of spots, a few hundred angstroms in diameter, in which the director is parallel to the surface, and the inverse, i.e., spots of vertical alignment on a horizontal aligning surface. Keywords include: Liquid crystals, Surface properties, Nematic liquid crystals, and Optical properties

Development of a Liquid Crystal Smart Reflector ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We present results concerning the development of liquid crystal smart reflectors, consisting of a cholesteric liquid crystal with temperature sensitive helix pitch, in combination with a light absorbing dye. Light entering the liquid crystal is absorbed by the dye, generating heat which raises the temperature of the liquid crystal. The resulting change in the helix pitch of the cholesteric causes an increase in its reflectivity, reducing the intensity of light that can be absorbed by the dye. This negative feedback stabilizes the reflector for a given light intensity. The smart reflector thus achieves a reflectivity which increases with increasing intensity of of incident light. We report on two configurations of the device, with both experimental measurements and mathematical models of the system

The Liquid Crystal Smart Reflector ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
We report the first demonstration of a liquid crystal smart reflector. This is an optical reflector based on cholesteric liquid crystals, in which as light intensity increases, so does the reflectivity. This is achieved by having an optically absorbing layer behind the cholesteric liquid crystal layer, and in thermal contact with it, acting as a sensor of light. The liquid crystal is chosen to have a highly temperature dependent helix pitch, so that when it is heated by the absorption of light in the sensor layer, its pitch changes rapidly. This is the computational function of the device. The change in helix pitch results in an increase in reflectivity of light, the actuator function of the device. The increased reflectivity stabilizes the device by negative feedback, keeping it at an effective operating point. We report experiments and computer simulations of the device demonstrating its successful function. (MM)
[J.D. Wallace speaks about the Naval Research Laboratory] [R.B. Meyer speaks about NOF, NSF and early Naval Research Laboratory] by J. D Wallace ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Memoirs of Stanford Caldwell Hooper, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy (Retired), in which he and some of his former associates discuss the history of naval radio in the United States, from its advent in the early part of the Twentieth Century, through some of the developments during and immediately after World War II. Recordings were made for the Naval Historical Foundation. The recording described by this record is about Naval Research Laboratory described by J.D. Wallace and R.B. Meyer
